Three militants killed in anti-terror operation in North Caucasus

Three militants killed in anti-terror operation in North Caucasus

Following the terror attack in North Ossetia on Thursday, Russian law enforcement forces carried out a successful operation against suspected militants in another volatile Caucasus republic, Dagestan.

Three gunmen were killed several hours after being surrounded in a house in the Dagestani village of Nizhnie Makhargikhami during an anti-terrorist operation.

Three policemen were also killed in the fighting, as the suspected terrorists refused to surrender and opened fire from the house.

The National anti-terrorism committee said the militants belonged to an extremist Wahhabi group led by a Turk known as Abdusalam.
